I'm a Minnesota native, born and raised in Austin and moved to the Twin Cities to attend college for law enforcement. My first exposure to Edward Jones was as a client. I've always been fascinated with finance; it was a natural fit for me to have a career as a financial advisor.

I started with Edward Jones in 2001 and opened my original office in the Circle Pines area. In 2004, I earned my AAMS™ designation. I was honored to become a limited partner of the firm in 2007. During my tenure, I've served as a leader to new financial advisors in our region and across the firm. Currently, I serve on our leadership team helping branches utilize the tools necessary to serve their clients.

Transitioning my office to Scandia in 2010 was an easy decision, as I've lived in the community since 1998. My focus is a human-centered approach geared toward helping our clients achieve their long-term financial goals using a holistic strategy. This includes retirement planning for business and personal needs, planning your estate, insurance and wealth transfer.

Jeni and I were married in 1993 and have two grown children, DJ and Emma. We've attended Eagle Brook Church since 2005 and have been involved in multiple areas, including student ministries. Jeni and I love to be outdoors hiking and biking in the St Croix River Valley. We love to travel, especially internationally. The different cultures around the world are fascinating. Trying new foods in their native setting never gets old to us.

I'm very passionate about the game of golf, both playing and watching, specifically The Masters. One day, I hope to attend the holy grail of golf in Augusta, Georgia.
